MISSOULA- When it comes to traveling North America by bike, it seems that all roads really do lead to Missoula. Tuesday, Adventure Cycling opened the doors to its newly renovated building in downtown Missoula.
The non-profit bike-travel organization makes maps of bicycle routes all over the country, organizes tours, and also provides a resting place where traveling cyclists can stop and put up their feet.
Its newly-remodeled home signifies the growth the organization has seen over the last 10 years and serves as a beacon for traveling cyclists everywhere.
"Missoula and Adventure Cycling have become the Mecca of bike travel for North America and we have many cyclists from all over the world that ride, under their own power, all the way here - sometimes thousands of miles just to see this building," executive director Jim Sayer explained.
Coming up this Friday, in conjunction with First Friday, Adventure Cycling will host a block party celebration to formally unveil their new space. They'll have art on the walls, food, drinks, live music as well as guided tours of their newly-remodeled home.
